Betta's love bloodworms! They need/want variety in their diet. I have pellets, flakes and freeze-dried bloodworms. I usually give Beaux one or two bloodworms a week. I've heard that bloodworms are considered a snack and I've never tried live bloodworms. I'd listen to what some other members have to say, too, though! I'm kind of new at all this. :P

I'd say the same as u would give pellets 1-2 and since they are a treat I only give my Bettas that many once a week. But i have the freeze dried ones so it may be different with live blood worms.

Ayane, how do you keep the live bloodworms? Are they in a container or something? My sisters would freak out if I got live bloodworms, haha!

Sounds like fun haha! If it makes you feel any better, your betta will probably praise you for giving it one
